    That depends on what is doing the attacking. The possibilities range from elephants to bacteria.

    haha good one Bob. do you have a picture? what are the conditions it is in? what kind of water are you watering with? have you sprayed a chemical recently? we need way more info than the traps are dying.

    the traps look like they got scratchd or something
    and the teeth are turning black even the newly formed ones

    Where are you growing it?
    What are you watering it with?
    Did you buy from a shop? If so, is it in the same peat?

    Are the leaves gnarled looking? Can you see if there is aphid damage? Is the soil media disturbed, as if a squirrel or a bird was pecking at something?

    i have no idea
    but the traps lookd like theyve been scratchd
    and the leaves look kinda burnd
    what worries me is that new traps that havent matured are being scratched also
